Fishermen’s Wharf leads the yellow perch parade

Despite a little windy weather now and then on Lake Erie, the overall fishing was pretty good this week around Port Clinton. Yellow perch continue to try to be in the spotlight with many anglers catching nice sized ones. Fisherman’s Wharf reported a couple great days last week with a few of those days ending with catches being close to limits. The hotspots of the week were at the Marblehead Lighthouse, west of the Catawba Peninsula to E Can, and also the Clinton Reef area. Shallow waters are the key to catching fair to very good numbers of perch. The waters between 12 and 22 feet deep proved to be the best. I talked to a guy who said he did excellent while perch fishing in Sandusky Bay this week. He caught a two man limit just outside the Cedar Point channel markers.
